The General English program develops students’ English language communication skills with a focus on building confidence and fluency in a friendly and fun environment. Through a communicative approach, students practice listening, speaking, reading and writing skills in a variety of ‘real life’ situations. Studying General English will give you the confidence and skills to function in an English speaking country or to go on to further study or examination preparation courses.
The program is designed around a range of course books that vary from level to level. As part of our academic department’s policy of continual improvement, we are constantly searching for the latest and most up to date classroom books and materials.
Discover English offers six levels of General English from Beginner to Advanced. Our Beginners class accepts students with very little exposure to English to students who have not yet acquired a single word; no one’s level is too low. Our Advanced General English class is for students with high level communicative skills and serves as an excellent base for advanced exam courses such as FCE, CAE, IELTS or Academic English.
General English students undertake a placement test to determine their entry point. Each week of class our teachers assess all students and undertake weekly unit assessments based on the material covered. Based on in-class assessment results and class performance, students may be recommended to take a change of level test at any stage of their enrolment.
